    Apply for anything and everything. You don't have the luxury of being picky. So if toilet cleaning is the only job going then that's what you'll have to do.

    Also be sure your CV is written properly, no spelling mistakes etc. You may be able to get your CV checked by Connections (do schools still have this?) at school, or some other service.

    Go around local businesses and ask the manager directly. This at least shows you're proactive and really want the work. If you just send or drop off a CV it will likely just sit and gather dust.

    you'll find it easier at 16, there are rules about what you can work when you are still at school and you can't do a lot of jobs

    the advice above is good, be willing to accept bad jobs, don't think you're going to get a job in tesco or something with good hours, it will probably mean being somewhere a bit rubbish for your first job... watch out for roles, check how different places recruit, some will do it online, some will accept CVs etc... also xmas temp jobs are a good place to start, these will appear in september-october usually, they won't be as picky about who they take but most places keep at least some people on so you can then work hard and prove yourself
